Soccer School Starlet Goes Viral

A photograph taken at home of a little girl looking up to her hero went viral this week after her mum shared the snap on social media.

Anastasia, who plays in the reception group at our Saturday Soccer School, was photographed alongside a life-size wall sticker of her football hero, Manchester City Women’s Ellie Roebuck. Wearing full Man City goalkeeper kit, matching orange boots, and her goalkeeper gloves, Anastasia looks every bit to be walking in her hero’s footsteps.

Anastasia and her mum Zoe are members of Manchester City Women’s supporters club. The whole family are City fans and with the men’s games proving to be a bit too rowdy, the women’s matches were a perfect fit for young Anastasia and they are now season ticket holders.

The photo has been shared across social media, collecting thousands of likes from inspired fans, and being shared by some household names like Billie Jean King, Puma and ESPN. Anastasia and her mum were interviewed by Women’s Football Today which you can watch here
